However, we do have data for the declaration date to payment date.</p><p> </p><p>Data published on 2 October 2017 shows that, 81% of new Universal Credit households received their first payment in full and on time. Across the whole of Universal Credit 92% of all households received full payment on time. The published data can be found here. <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/universal-credit-payment-timeliness-january-to-june-2017" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/universal-credit-payment-timeliness-january-to-june-2017</a></p><p> </p><p>The policy intention is that claimants receive the first payment 5 weeks after their date of entitlement (6 weeks if waiting days are served). This mirrors the world of work and allows for time in which to gather information about a claimant’s earnings.</p><p> </p><p>Our internal data shows that for those cases where full payment has not been made, around a sixth, have not signed their Claimant Commitment or passed identity checks . The others have outstanding verification issues, for example, housing, self-employed earnings and child-care costs.</p><p> </p>
